AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We went back through our lives. Nothing counted but thoroughness and honesty. When we were finished we considered it carefully. – Pg. 65 – How It Works – 3rd. and 4th. Edition

Another day of sobriety begins. Continue to welcome with open arms, those now with less time than you. We DO one kind thing each day for someone: get them a cup of coffee, escort a newcomer to a chair, empty an ashtray after a meeting.
God, as I understand You, show me each day some kind thing I can DO for someone else.
Loving Myself through Action
I want to do something special for myself today. Giving to others and withholding from myself doesn’t work. I tend to treat other people the way that I treat myself. If I am stingy with me, I will, somewhere along the line, act that out with other people. If I am hard on myself, I will tend to be hard on others. I am the only person who is with me all hours of the day and I know what feels good and warm to me. I know what makes me feel sustained from within. Today, I will encourage, support and congratulate myself. Each time I do something that pleases me I’ll say ‘thank you’ to myself. Each time I do something well, I’ll tell myself ‘good job.’ I will be my own best cheerleader.
I will encourage and support myself.

Self will and ‘running the show’ can be like the monkey who sticks his hand into the trap for food. He grasps the food tightly creating a fist that won’t slide out the trap door. The monkey struggles but won’t release the food and he is trapped. Holding tight to your will and your way can be the fist that traps you.
I Let Go and Let God. What a relief.

If you’re thinking about going to a meeting, go to the meeting, and then think about it.
